First 96Boards CE Extended SBC taps Snapdragon 600

Filed under

Linux
Debian
Ubuntu

eInfochips and Arrow are prepping an open-spec 96Boards CE Extended form-factor SBC with a Snapdragon 600, plus WiFi-ac, BT, GbE, GPS, SATA, and MIPI-CSI.

An “SD 600eval” single board computer, which appears to be a follow-on to the similarly 96Boards compatible DragonBoard 410c from Qualcomm and Arrow, appears to be nearing launch. eInfochips has posted a product page and a $279 price for the Snapdragon 600-based hacker board, which will be sold by Arrow Electronics. eInfochips refers to the board as the SD 600eval, but product images include “db600c” in their names, suggesting it could be announced as the rumored DragonBoard 600c. Considering the high price, it’s also possible a cheaper, somewhat more limited SBC based on the design
could eventually appear under the DragonBoard brand.

5 best Android smartphones available in India

Filed under
Android

One thing is pretty clear. Android has become the most ubiquitous computing platform on the face of the planet. That by default also means most people just buy Android smartphones. India is a great example of this trend as the average purchasing power doesn’t allow people to buy iPhones.

India is generally an Android-first market compared to other markets. It is because Android smartphones are vastly cheaper - even the flagship models which compete with the iPhone.

BlackBerry's 2016 Android Phone Lineup REVEALED: The Hamburg & Rome

Filed under
Android

A batch of images and details emerged via Chinese sources for two handsets codenamed the "Hamburg" and "Rome", however, it has since come to our attention that there's been some nefarious stuff going on. According to a report from CrackBerry the Chinese source that leaked these renders acquired them (and re-watermarked them as their own) from Dylan Habkirk, a contributor on the CrackBerry forums who has insider knowledge of BlackBerry. Habkirk rendered these images based on his own information, in the case of the Hamburg some "internal device sketches" he has seen, and in the case of the Rome his own hands-on time with a prototype. This means of course that these renders have not come from inside BlackBerry, and that the designs are not final, so while it does debunk the original leak to an extent, the revelations still don't rule out that they exist and are in development in some way or another, even if only a sketch and even if they never see the light of day. Interestingly, accoding to Habkirk's comments on the incident (which we'd urge you to read in full), the Rome is actually the previously rumoured and leaked BlackBerry Vienna, it appears it's just in a later stage of development.

Fedora: The Latest

  • New "remi-php71" repository
  • PHP on the road to the 7.1.0 release
  • First round of Fedora 24 Updated Lives now available. (torrents expected later this week)
    As noted by my colleague on his blog the first round of F24 Updated Lives are now available and carry the date 20160720, Also as mentioned last week on his blog F23 Respins are not going to be actively made, however we and the rest of the volunteer team will field off-off requests as time and resources permit. We are considering a new/second tracker for the Updated Spins but as of today there are only .ISO files available at https://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/live-respins [shortlink] F24 Live-Respins . The F24 respins carry the 4.6.4-200 Kernel and roughly ~500M of updates since the Gold ISOs were released just 5 weeks ago. (some ISOs have more updates, some less)

  • Snappy Packaging Happenings In The Fedora, Arch Space
    This week Canonical hosted a Snappy Sprint in Heidelberg, Germany where they worked to further their new package management solution originally spearheaded for Ubuntu Touch. This wasn't an Ubuntu-only event, but Canonical did invite other distribution stakeholders. Coming out of this week's event were at least positive moments to share for both Arch and Fedora developers. The Arch snaps package guy made progress on snap confinement on Arch. Currently when using Snaps on Arch, there isn't any confinement support, which defeats some of the purpose. There isn't any confinement support since it relies upon some functionality in the Ubuntu-patched AppArmor with that code not yet being mainlined. Arch's Timothy Redaelli has got those AppArmor patches now running via some AUR packages. Thus it's possible to get snap confinement working on Arch, but it's not yet too pleasant of an experience.
